Movie Mondays – Galentine’s Day (Netflix edition)

“I made yours yellow, because you remind me of sunshine.” – Dumplin’ (2018)

Pitch Perfect (2012)

If #SquadGoals is still a concept, then this film is the epitome of it. When Beca (Anna Kendrick) starts college she reclutantly finds herself audtioning for the Barden Bellas, an a capella group made up of all-women. The songs are great, the friendships are even better.

Thelma and Louise (1991)

The road trip movie with a difference, a landmark feminist film. Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis play two women who’ve been downtrodden by life for far too long. Plans for a weekend trip away at a fishing mountain deviate very quickly and very dramatically. Iconic.

Dumplin (2018)

The friendships within this film are portrayed so wonderfully. Willowdean (Danielle Macdonalad) and Ellen (Odeya Rush) are at the centre, but from there so many other really lovely friendships blossom.

The Last Word (2017)

Time for a bit of cross-generational friendships. When Harriett (Shirley MacLaine) decides that she wants to craft her own obituary, as she doesn’t trust anyone else with the job, she coerces the local paper’s obituary writer (played by Amanda Seyfried) to ensure her life story is told exactly the way she wants it. Notable also for excellent usage of The Kinks.

Bad Moms (2016)

A great surprise when it arrived in cinemas. A properly funny out-and-out comedy with a heart at the centre. The central trio (made up of Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn) make for a truly watchable and hilarious watching experience.
